The Met Gala is on Monday, and to celebrate the upcoming event, please and kindly join me on a trip down memory lane of the best outfits to grace the Met steps:

1.

I remember the moment that Zendaya arrived like it was yesterday — the whole SCENE was stunning. The message behind her shedding her Disney persona as she entered adult hood was *chef’s kiss*.

2.

Menstrual cycle, but make it FASHION! Seriously though, this was also a moment™. I think Camp was my favorite Met Gala theme.
